I have a formview only in view mode that displays when a record is selected in a gridview on a web page. There are a couple of fields that can be null. How can I not display the labels that contain those values if the field is null in the database?

I ran into this problem as well.  All I could figure out to do was to do a try on the data:

try
 {
Table.PROD2_DATE = (DateTime)dataRow[0]["PROD2_DATE"];
}
catch
{
Table.PROD2_DATE = Date.Now();
 }

My page would blow up if I didn't check if the values were null.  Hope it helps.
